Re: Ryanair Cancellations

I used to use Monarch regularly until I heard rumours of bankruptcy a while back, feel sorry for people stranded.

Sounds like you can get a flight from another airline that should be honoured by Ryanair?

Re: Mosquitoes

Surely it's common sense that if a cure for cancer (as an example) was found then why hide it? The company would make billions would they not?

Re: Citreon 2CV

Back in 1962 I was given a lift in France in a 2CV van. The noise level was probably above the current action level to prevent hearing loss in health and safety legislation. I think the only thing they had going for them was that they could be completely taken apart and reassembled with a handful o...

Re: Know Your Customer (KYC)

I have just had experience of the KYC regulations and I thought the information gained might be valuable to anyone else who finds themselves having to satisfy their requirements. For those who are not aware KYC is part of the anti-money laundering DIRECTIVE 2005/60/EC subsequently amended by DIRECT...

Re: Bad smell from sump pump

A lot of swimming pools in Crete have a pump house that is well below ground level. If that starts to fill with water during the rainy season it can blow the main pool pump , which can be expensive to replace. People usually install a float operated drainage pump to pump out any rainwater ingress. ...

Re: Wind

The region of Earth receiving the Sun's direct rays is the equator. Here, air is heated and rises, leaving low pressure areas behind. Moving to about thirty degrees north and south of the equator, the warm air from the equator begins to cool and sink. Between thirty degrees latitude and the equator...

Re: Decent Garage or mechanic near Chania ?

Alas, John/Yanni has sold up (I think) and retired! I haven't spoken to him myself but from what I have heard from friends who have, it is possible that when he does close up his current premises he might carry on doing some repair work from home. It might be worth getting his mobile number if you ...

Your welcome Clio, no I don't do blocked sinks but have been known to wear my underpants on the outside of my trousers. These sites do disappear quite often but pop up again with a diff...

Re: Teenagers & Internet

No magic answer to the question, however I must agree that it's not just the teenagers, I know people in their 50,s and 60,s who will happily spend all day on facebook etc with their imaginary friends.
